News Update: 1st April 2023

Fishing at Swan Lake, Antony Cooke used a ‘Ronnie’ rig baited with a 14mm Live System pop-up fished amongst a few scattered 15mm and 18mm boilies which was picked up by a 28lb mirror carp. Later in the week, Steve Curtin used only a minimal amount of bait to tempt a 31lb mirror carp.

At Gingerbread Lake, Graeme Gadsby caught a beautiful looking 13lb 6oz mirror carp, one of a number of carp recently stocked into the venue. Also, he caught 5 sizable bream during his stay. Fraser Hayden was targeting the lake’s bream too catching another 5 bream each weighing between 5-7lbs.

The torrential rain during the week has resulted in all three Sandy Lakes flooding with many swims inaccessible. A substantial pile of wood chippings has been deposited in the first entrance at Swan Lake designated for swims 1-3 and 12 and 13. The Board would welcome any assistance that members can give in spreading them as outlined. There is a wheelbarrow and shovel on site available for use. More chippings will be forthcoming to top dress other swims.
